Beyond Bhakti: Contemporary Spiritual Poetics Across Europe and The Americas

Dec 10, 2016 | 4:00 pm

Join us for a reading and discussion of devotional poetry gleaned across expanses of time and geography with Ravi Shankar, Drunken Boat’s founding editor. Clare Cavanagh reads new work and discusses the articulation of spirit in the Eastern European tradition and the role translation plays. Ellen Doré Watson reads and discusses her translations of the Brazilian poet Adélia Prado. Patty Crane discusses the mysticism at the edges of poet Tomas Tranströmer’s work. The translators explore ways that their distinctive traditions overlap, diverge, and interrelate.
